As you probably know, the Cape Mudge Band has applied to rezone 85.5 hectares of water area for the rearing of scallops. This application extends into a portion of the Park, and extends past IR #9 to the area in front of the private properties at the south of the Reserve boundary. It was considered at the Electoral Areas Services Committee last week and will go to the Board on Feb. 23rd for the setting of a public hearing date. That date will be March 17th at 7pm at the Quadra Community Centre. If you have any concerns or comments about this application, the public hearing is your opportunity to voice those comments. The regional board will make its decision based on all of the input received and the agency referral comments. I look forward to seeing you there.

Feel free to call me between the hours of 8:30 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday (not on weekends, folks!) at 285-3355, or you can fax me at 285-3533 or you can email me anytime at , or by mail at Box 278 in the Cove, V0P 1N0... Lots of choices.
